Halloween will be here before we know it. It is one of our favorite times of the year to bring out the paint and get creative. Download our free bat handprint template below and create a wonderful keepsake.
This is such a lovely way to get messy with the kids while creating happy memories.
If you love handprint arts I think you will also love our alphabet handprint series. This is such a fun way to learn the alphabet.

You probably have all of the supplies you need to make this fun little bat.
- cardstock (or if you want to print it on colored paper we love this colorful cardstock)
- washable paints
- dot markers
- glitter glue pens
- kids glue
- googly wiggle eyes (Optional)
- Wipes!! It helps to have these handy so you don’t make a complete mess of your table!
Print out the template below, it will print out on three full pages and will print out landscape. Make sure to check the printer settings.
If you are printing on colored paper please only print the first page. The second and third pages are the Halloween stickers, and these will definitely look better printed on white paper.
You can of course print this on normal printer paper, but with all of our crafts, they always look better on cardstock.
The first page is the bat handprint template.
The other two pages are stickers that you can cut around and add to the ghost handprint art.
Grab the supplies above and get creating!
Let the kids decide what color handprint they want to use. We decided to use a dark blue paint.
Use a small paintbrush to add a thin layer of paint to their hand. Make sure you have the wipes handy!!
Cover their hands with paint and place their hands upwards with the palm of their hands on the side of the bat’s face. Press down all along their hand to make sure the handprint transfers fully.
Pull the child’s hands up carefully, ensuring you don’t smudge the handprints.
Let it dry completely before adding googly eyes and stickers.
Cut out the stickers and let the kids decide whether they want to add them to this picture or to another one.
The stickers might be a fun way to decorate the trick-or-treat bags too.
